Musical "Les belles soeurs" based on Michel Tremblay's play is coming to TO

One of our book club's favourite authors had his popular play "Les belles soeurs" converted to a musical in Quebec a few years ago. The musical continues to be a huge success in "la belle province".  Now a Toronto group is aiming to produce an English version.  I saw the original play in Winnipeg back in the mid nineties.  I loved it but my American co-workers in town for short term Y2K contract work failed to appreciate the humour.  Sometimes I think one has to grow up in Quebec to understand it's culture.  I can't wait to see how the musical turns out.  Here's a link to the French musical touring Quebec http://belles-soeurs.ca/spectacle.php
